Okay – we’ve got this new Blog feature going thanks to Luke Goodwin who is more than happy to make your site more functional (and beautiful!). We are working to upgrade a few features on the web site and will let you know as we go!

The Hitmen will be up tomorrow and you will be able to buy it from us (tomorrow) and from CD Baby (in a couple days). It is FANTASTIC! In case you were wondering.

I am wrasslin’ Pro Tools at the moment, which has brought my mixing The Icons to a screechingĀ  halt for the moment.

The Xmas album is coming along though with a beautiful White Mule Family track in progress.

More later …

The Green Pajamas live at Silver Platters is playing in the box to your right. Nice!

Whew. Lettsee. There’s a super review of The Icons’ Masters of Disaster in Rock and Reprise. Thanks, Frank!

The Hitmen‘s Smashface is all done and it is totally fantastico and ready for a Halloween release.

Working to get the GMR Xmas thing together – tain’t too late to get something in if you’re so inclined.

Baked and digitized the entire 17 song unreleased second album by The Life yesterday. This whole thing was recorded and then of course the band broke up. I will be reissuing The Life’s Alone this year and may include this or do it as a separate thing – we’ll just have to see.

Working with a Tacoma-n named Luke to upgrade the web page, while keeping our overall highly desirable style. You will be seeing some changes in the next few months – some subtle, some less so.

Howie might be making a new video for The Hitmen’s album. Maybe.

Protools has been crapping out on me so I’ve made very little progress mixing The IconsAppointment With Destiny! the last month, but I hope I am getting to the root ot the issue and moving forward!

Got my first ever Danaelectro (U-1) recently and no it is not a 50′s model that I paid big dough for, it is a cheap 90′s Korean model and it is damn cool! Coming soon to a recording near you.

Other than that, nothing going on.

Another day in the life! The Hitmen’s SMASHFACE release is mastered. The cover is done and out to print. The insert is done. Time to get to work on the Xmas AotM. We will be whipping up some new delights for you as well as a few favorites. If it happens, there may be a long overdue reunion of the White Mule Family (author, Pip & ex-PJ Karl) doing the freshly written (at the bar in the Maple Leaf Grill) It’s a White Mule Xmas!

We recently uncovered 15 or so unreleased songs by The Life, so we will be working on the ultra-expanded version of Alone in the next few months. Also have scheduled with Joe Ross to master the PJ’s Summer of Lust in the next couple months so we can get that out this spring. Might get a new Green Pajamas CD from Jeff soon. Maybe a new Goblin Market. Who knows?

Howie is working on some great video from a GMR show at the Backstage in 1989 (with the PJ’s, The Life and The Hitmen) and the recent Pajamas’ gig at Silver Platters. I am mixing The Icons new album. Busy, busy, busy!

The Green Pajamas in-store show at Silver Platters was pretty fine. The Red, Red Rose sounded great. Video and pics to follow.

Just spotted a great review of Book of Hours at Americana UK – 8 stars out of 10!
